Mara Brock Akil has been hearing our prayers and pleads for a Girlfriends movie, but unfortunately, she has run into a huge hiccup. Apparently, she needs $50-60 million to get the job done.
“Yeah, you can tell any studio in town: If they got 50 to 60 million, I already have the script. We can make an epic story and we can make a lot of money, but me hustling and knocking on doors begging to do this story is not where it is anymore. It deserves somebody to see the value in it and write that check. That’s what it’s about,”
And we hear her, you shouldn’t have to beg and plead for someone to see your worth, especially since Girlfriends was every black woman’s favorite show for 8 years.
This isn’t the first time we’ve talked about a Girlfriends reboot, we need more examples of relatable, strong, and successful black woman on television. Check out why we love this show so much:
